Kerry college will take it if it comes with awards nomination

Ireland Chapter of Project Management Institute and PwC officials announcing the shortlist for the National Project Awards

AN initiative undertaken by the Kerry College of Further Education has been shortlisted for a National Project Award by the Ireland Chapter of Project Management Institute.

The Take It or Leave It project is one of three nominated in the Social Good: Corporate Project of the Year category held in partnership with PwC.

The Kerry concept is based on an in-house initiative where people attending courses can help out fellow students, if required or requested

Students leave unwanted, non-perishable food on a shelf just inside the entrance to the college and any other student in need can take it away.

From developing state-of-the-art automated solutions to milestone projects that changed Ireland, the shortlisted finalists in the various categories represent the country’s leading projects and project management personnel.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of PMI globally, the 2019 awards will be presented in the Dublin offices of PwC on November 14 and they will not only acknowledge the winners of the seven categories but also the winner of a special Jubilee Award for Ireland’s most influential project over the past half a century.

Speaking on the high calibre of projects submitted for the 2019 awards, Pat Lucey, President of the Ireland Chapter of PMI, stated: “Once again the submissions for the National Project Awards have highlighted the extraordinary work being done across the country by project managers.

“While the shortlisted projects may be diverse, from the delivery of the country’s largest tourism investment to the implementation of new technology for patient care, each and every one showcases project management excellence and highlights the positive impact that the discipline has,” he said.
